General Dentistry
 
General dentists are the primary dental care providers for patients of all ages and they prevent, evaluate, diagnose, and treat diseases of the oral cavity, as well as maintain the function and appearance of the teeth.
 
They can treat you and your entire family and care for your overall oral health. Your general dentist takes responsibility for the diagnosis, treatment and overall coordination of services to meet your oral health needs. If you need a specialized dental procedure performed, your general dentist may work with other dentists to make sure you get the care you need.
 
Specialist and general treatments are offered within the Unit. All dentists are able to provide treatment, however, at the Dental and Implantology Unit specialist work is performed by the particular specialist required. This enables us to offer the standard of care that we would wish our own families to have.
 
We treat all aspects of general dentistry from simple fillings and tooth extractions to a scale and polish, fixed bridges and dentures using the finest materials and the latest technology.
